Today started out a bit rough. Power outage. 2 hour delay for the girls. Meetings. Work. Morning really got away from me.
Luckily, I was able to slip into a 4:45 class with Coach Isaac. And there were a lot of folks in the later class… Lisa, Deana & Marino, Chris, Sean, Bill, Amber, Liam, and Olivia (the whole Gates clan!). Jed was there warming up as well and doing yesterday’s workout. We had quite a crew!
Isaac put us through the same warm-up we did yesterday and then we did some overhead squat work with a PVC pipe before dividing up among the various weight racks. Marino was kind enough to pair up with me today.
I went heavier than I was expecting. 🙂
- 45# x5
- 95# x3
- 115# x3
- 5×3 OHS
- 135# x3
- 135# x3
- 140# x2 (failed on rep 3 and had to drop)
- 140# x3
- 145# x3
Funny enough, I thought my one rep max was only 135#. I went back and looked at my spreadsheet. Turns out my one rep max WAS #145 back in July 2017. Crazy. I did that three times today.
That bodes well for the future. 🙂
Thank you Marino for the guidance and Isaac for the coaching today. I appreciated the reminders as I tried to tighten my core through each rep. Only had issues on a few lifts and repeated those weights to get through them.
Now, I have to say that my right shoulder is a little ticked off at the moment… but I’m happy with how the night went. Great work 4:45 class!
